Other  good sources of vitamin A  include carrots, dark leafy green vegetables,  sweet potatoes , and  eggs . Retinoids, including retinol, tretinoin, isotretinoin, and similar chemicals, are manufactured forms of vitamin A. B-complex vitamins Several  B-complex vitamins  may improve skin health. The water-soluble vitamins are readily available as supplements, including as supplements that include all 12 B-complex vitamins. Research into the role of vitamin B-complex supplements is promising, though inconclusive. A  2018 study  found that vitam
